Outfits Lately

Hi friend!  Like you, I’ve been so saddened and sickened by the tragedy in Uvalde.  And as sad and angry as I am, it’s no match for what the families are going through right now.  I can’t stop thinking about that and the children.  The precious children.

I know many of you come here for a respite from the heaviness of the world and I thank you for that.  I promise to honor my commitment to keep things positive around here- it’s actually my respite too.

I do want to let you know that I shared some ways we can use our voice and energy to help affect change.  It’s saved to my Instagram Story highlight called ACTION.

Today, I’m making it a good day because my 12 year-old son, James, and I are off on a mother/son trip, just the two of us!

I’ve been so looking forward to a stretch of undivided alone time with him.  He’s way more independent than my 6 year-old daughter, and she tends to dominate my time, which I often feel guilty about.

I really enjoy my son’s company and this weekend trip to Minnesota (his choice!) will be awesome.  We’re heading to a Twins game tonight and will be visiting the Mall of America tomorrow.  If you have any other recommendations for what we should do while we’re in town, please drop it in the comments!

OUTFITS LATELY

Today, I’m rounding up a month’s worth of cute and comfy, plus affordable! warm weather outfits.  If you’ve been struggling to put yourself together in the morning, give yourself a nudge.  We always feel better about ourselves when we spend a little extra time getting ready.  It’s like feminine armour for the day, right?!

    We did Mall of America in November with our kids that are very similar age to your son! It was such a fun trip! Check out the go kart track on the 4th floor.

    We took our teenage boys to Minneapolis a few years ago…it was such a fun trip! We went to Minnehaha Falls…it’s a waterfall right in the city. It was really neat and the boys loved playing in the water there. It’s really easy to access.

    Welcome to Minnesota!! It’s the perfect day for a TWINS game! great idea. And, we LOVE the MOA here. So much to do in one place. My kids love the aquarium there! (SEA LIFE at Mall of America) There are plenty of cheesy, but fun restaurants, mini golf, the amusement park! It will be very fun day for the two of you!

    And yes, Minnehaha Falls is a GREAT outdoor adventure that doesn’t take the whole day. You can hike a little and see the river after you see the falls. (weather permitting of course! ha)

    We’ll be at the TWINS game on Sunday, so sorry to miss you!

    And, last, but not least, THANK YOU for all the actionable steps to take in light of the Uvalde school shooting. We must band together and create change!

    Have a great time in my hometown! Yes to Minnehaha Falls! My grand parents lived a couple of blocks away, and we spent lots of happy times there. I still manage to get there when I get back to MN. You can take the Light Rail there.

    Thank you for both the positive, fun fashion content and for acknowledging the heartbreak we are all navigating. As a 2nd grade teacher and mom to two elementary school children, I am just so shaken up by this. I found your blog a couple of years ago when I was looking for inspiration for cute teacher outfits, and I love your recommendations. Enjoy your weekend with your son – spending quality time with our kids feels like all that really matters right now.

      I feel the same Megan. It’s an ache I can’t escape from. It’s so heavy. I’m trying to turn it around here, but my heart breaks for the families and community. Thank you for stopping by and being here so long. We LOVE our teachers!

    You can’t come to Minnesota without enjoying one of the 10,000 plus lakes! Excelsior is a great town with lots to do and it’s on Lake Minnetonka. Enjoy your time here!

    I don’t know if your son knows anything about Charlie Brown and the gang from Peanuts. I’m sure you do. In St. Paul, about 16 miles away from MOA, there are statues to be seen for fans. Enjoy your trip with your wonderful son. Safe travels.

    Have so much fun with your trip! It’s so cool that you guys are getting away and spending the time together. So so precious! I love all of your outfits. You always look so pretty and I adore that yellow peplum top as well as the black jumpsuit.
